Yesterday we went to my parents' house for a birthday supper for Jim. There had been freezing rain earlier, but the roads were fine by late afternoon. Then the weather changed again. Mom and Dad live on a main route (speed limit is 90 km) and instead of racing by the house, the cars were crawling, sliding, and spinning. A salt truck wasn't seen for hours. They must have been busy trying to get to too many roads. The RCMP were on the road much earlier trying to help and warn cars. We watched and waited. At 11:30, a salt truck finally passed by and vehicles started to move a little easier. We decided to venture out and head home. The photo above shows us waiting in the drive way for the RCMP and tow truck to get one of the vehicles (before salt truck) from the ditch.
